The 35-year-old Lorna Hughes, Esq. is in a jam. She has hit her professional peak, her love life has dropped to an all-time low, and she knows she must re-invent herself before it gets too late. She decides to start a collective of artists, musicians, and writers, where they can live relatively rent-free and work towards success without having to have three jobs to support themselves. She finds a dilapidated motel in Heatherton County, Florida (just over the intracoastal from St. Augustine) and with the help of a new-found family, her dreams begin to materialize.
